"The Transit Street Design Guide sets a new vision for how cities can harness the immense potential of transit to create active and efficient streets in neighborhoods and downtowns alike. Building on the Urban Street Design Guide and Urban Bikeway Design Guide, the Transit Street Design Guide details how reliable public transportation depends on a commitment to transit at every level of design. Developed through a new peer network of NACTO members and transit agency partners, the Guide provides street transportation departments, transit operating agencies, leaders, and practitioners with the tools to actively prioritize transit on the street."--Site Web de NACTO.

The NACTO Urban Street Design Guide shows how streets of every size can be reimagined and reoriented to prioritize safe driving and transit, biking, walking, and public activity. Unlike older, more conservative engineering manuals, this design guide emphasizes the core principle that urban streets are public places and have a larger role to play in communities than solely being conduits for traffic. The well-illustrated guide offers blueprints of street design from multiple perspectives, from the bird’s eye view to granular details. Case studies from around the country clearly show how to implement best practices, as well as provide guidance for customizing design applications to a city’s unique needs. Urban Street Design Guide outlines five goals and tenets of world-class street design: • Streets are public spaces. Streets play a much larger role in the public life of cities and communities than just thoroughfares for traffic. • Great streets are great for business. Well-designed streets generate higher revenues for businesses and higher values for homeowners. • Design for safety. Traffic engineers can and should design streets where people walking, parking, shopping, bicycling, working, and driving can cross paths safely. • Streets can be changed. Transportation engineers can work flexibly within the building envelope of a street. Many city streets were created in a different era and need to be reconfigured to meet new needs. • Act now! Implement projects quickly using temporary materials to help inform public decision making. Elaborating on these fundamental principles, the guide offers substantive direction for cities seeking to improve street design to create more inclusive, multi-modal urban environments. It is an exceptional resource for redesigning streets to serve the needs of 21st century cities, whose residents and visitors demand a variety of transportation options, safer streets, and vibrant community life.

The Urban Street Stormwater Guide begins from the principle that street design can support--or degrade--the urban area's overall environmental health. By incorporating Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) into the right-of-way, cities can manage stormwater and reap the public health, environmental, and aesthetic benefits of street trees, planters, and greenery in the public realm. Building on the successful NACTO urban street guides, the Urban Street Stormwater Guide provides the best practices for the design of GSI along transportation corridors. The state-of-the-art solutions in this guide will assist urban planners and designers, transportation engineers, city officials, ecologists, public works officials, and others interested in the role of the built urban landscape in protecting the climate, water quality, and natural environment.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Menschen mit Beeintrachtigungen stossen immer wieder auf Grenzen unterschiedlichster Auspragung. Dies gilt auch fur den Bereich Freizeitgestaltung, Reisen und Tourismus. Entlang der gesamten touristischen Servicekette konnen dabei Barrieren auftreten: nicht nur bei der Wahl einer physisch barrierefreien Unterkunft sondern auch beim Zugang zu spezifischen Informationen. Diese Arbeit untersucht die besonderen Anforderungen des barrierefreien Tourismus fur Menschen mit korperlichen Einschrankungen. Spezialisierte Reisemittler wurden zu ihren Erfahrungen mit dieser Kundengruppe befragt und die Ergebnisse im Rahmen einer Fallstudie prasentiert."

Leercontainer sind eine Hauptressource von Transportgesellschaften. Ihre Bereitstellung an den Bedarfsorten ist durch ein Leercontainermanagement sicherzustellen. Komplexitat, Dynamik, Stochastizitat sowie Flexibilitatsanforderungen kennzeichnen die Problematik und legen die Nutzung dezentraler Ansatze nahe. Dies erfordert die Koordination des Verhaltens der Akteure zu dem aus Sicht des Gesamtsystems optimalen Ergebnis durch den Mechanismus selbst. Die Vickrey-Auktion weist als Allokationsverfahren besondere Vorteile auf. Die ihr zugrunde liegenden Gedanken nutzte bereits Goethe bei der Vergabe von Verlagsrechten. Auf dieser Basis wird ein Mechanismus entwickelt, der die effiziente Allokation der Ressourcen - die optimale Zuordnung der verfugbaren Container auf die bestehenden Verwendungsoptionen - erzielt."

This book is a study of design initiatives and policies in five US West Coast cities -- Seattle (including Bellevue), Portland, San Francisco, Irvine and San Diego--all of which have had particularly interesting urban design experience of relevance to practice in Britain and other countries.Although these cities are not a representative sample of all American design practice, they provide a rich vein of ideas about recent policy development and current initiatives which will stimulate thought about the formulation of effective design controls. The presentation of substantial extracts from key documents that underpin design controls in the five cities will be of interest, inspiration and practical use to academics and practitioners who want to know more about American practice and who want to contribute to improvements in the standards and quality of urban design policies and design control.The opening chapter provides a national context and a comparative framework for the study, with a focus on international perspectives, American planning systems and the development of criteria for comparison and evaluation. The five subsequentchapters take each city in turn, briefly reviewing the salient characteristics of each one before presenting an account of how planning and design policy have evolved in the last twenty-five years; key features of the contemporary systems of design control are highlighted and a summary evaluation is made. The focus in the case studies is on how policy and guidance have been formulated, structured and presented in the various documents that make up the policy framework, how the process of control operates, and how both respond to the criticisms commonly made of design and control. This final chapter draws general conclusions about the experience of the studied cities of wider relevance to American design review practice, but which are of interest to those engaged in design review and policy formulation everywhere.
